Abstract:

In performing operational test and evaluation functions, the U.S. Army has a real need for a good position determing system. Operational tests are used to evaluate new fighting concepts, in what are usually referred to as war games. This kind of testing involves a large number of players over a large area. For a good evaluation of the test, a method of determining and displaying the positions of all, or selected, test elements is essential. The U.S. Army has purchased two positioning systems, the Position Reporting and Recording SystemAutomatic Data Collection System PRRSADCS and the Range Measuring System-2Data Distribution System RMS-2DDS, which were both specially developed for Army operational testing. To decide which of these positioning systems would give the better performance for a new operational testing site, a qualitative comparison of the operational performance of these systems is needed. The report makes that comparison.
